Hi peruzzi,

what is your db? if sql/server :

select case(booleanfield
            when true then 'good'
            when false then 'bad'
            end) from table1 where name='jone'

there is a TBooleanField,
which should be automatically
assigned to your table-boolean field

there is a property DisplayValues
add there good;bad

I think kretzschmar has it right.

Some more explanation :

If you doubleclick your TTable-Component in Delphi IDE, then do CTRL-F to add all fields linked to the Table you provided in TableName-property of your TTable.

Now you should see the BooleanField between all the other fields. Click on this field an go to the Object Inspector. change the Property 'DisplayValues' into good;bad.

If you now drag and drop this BooleanField from the FieldEditor (doubleclicking on TTable) to your Form, you should see 'good' if this field contains True and 'bad' if the field contains 'False' at runtime.

Hope I was of some help. Anyway the Kretzschmar had the right answer to your Q. I just tried to clarified the way of working.

Best regards,

The Mayor.
